Many times we’ve been struggling to find a way and play video games with our best friends. Whether it is due to a different platform or something else, sometimes we’re pushed to disband purposedly. Well, 343 Industries is planning to change that in Halo Infinite and allow players to team up locally, thanks to the support of split-screen. However, the local split-screen limits two players at a time, while four players may co-op throughout the campaign online.
Jerry Hook, Head of Design at 343 Industries, explained this a couple of days ago. He wanted to clarify that the split-screen feature will only be available to 2 players at a time, correcting the media that misunderstood the split-screen capabilities.
Hey everyone I saw some reports of campaign supporting 4 player Split screen for campaign and just want to correct. Halo Infinite will be supporting 2 player split screen and 4 player online co-op for campaign. Sorry about the confusion. #haloinfinte

I do not fancy hosting local parties, but it may come handy when my best friend decides to visit me for a cup of coffee. Many players are already frustrated by Halo Infinite’s graphics showcased at the Xbox Games reveal event.
Halo Infinite campaign will take place in the very first open-world and sandbox environment for the series. It is known that these sandbox driven features will also weigh on the multiplayer, but not to abnormal value. The Master Chief’s experience should be quite higher than in his previous appearances.
With a release date in Holiday 2020, we expect Halo Infinite to launch together with the Xbox Series X, but also join the PC platform at that same date. That would be somewhere between October and December 2020.
